James Nyamu leading by example

story Thursday, November 17, 2016

IAS and Solvatten signed a MoU earlier in 2016 and the first collaboration in the field began in May 2016 when IAS started distribution of Solvatten in Tharaka. One of the beneficiaries, James Nyamu is the treasure of Manyirani Farmers Self-Help Group (MFSHG) living in Karuma, Kenya. James owns a wood workshop and his wife is a peasant farmer. They practice subsistence and horticultural farming through which they get their daily food and some income. James have managed to get one solvatten container which they use at home to heat and treat their drinking water.

I have been using a lot of money on de-wormers and waterborne diseases due to use of the Kathita river water which we also use for irrigation. Now with Solvatten in the house we can save a lot and health is better
